Thanks Chris, I fixed mine too. I just seem to be having a few senior moments today. I went to the Post Office to mail a flywheel to Moosetales and forgot to take his address. Its tough to get old. I have an old WH mower deck that may fit that too.

Good luck!  I think that's a deal, if it were closer you'd be fighting Ben Wagner!

I got it and it is home. He is a nice kid with several wheelhorses. His real interest is antique outboard motors. This one runs but has transaxle problems. We are not sure how serious. The paint looks good from a distance but is over rust. He bought it, got it running but then the transmission 2 speed shifter stopped working. He decided that he'd rather play with other things. If I can fix the transaxle this will be worth restoring and a good deal. If I can't fix it, I will have to part it out to not loose money. Good Luck. Rick

I rebuilt one before. As I recall it was fairly easy. I just worry about parts.

It's not that hard. You lay it on the right side and take the left side off. The bearings can all be bought after market for about $75, except the inboard main axle bearings which can only be obtained from Toro in trade for your first born son! If you want I can get the instructions for the overhaul from WheelHorse.org.

Thanks Lilysdad. I was going to use the manual that is posted above. How are you doing? I was kinda blue yesterday because of what our politicians in Connecticut did. The Wheelhorse was a perk me up. I will take it off the trailer today and see if the mower deck I have will fit it.

^ I feel bad, but I feel it's going to happen over here next. I would love to see how they're going to enforce it without serial numbers on magazines. Glad to hear you got this!!

We found out last night that the governor intends that you have to have a reciept to prove when you got the magazine and any guns. If it was handed down or a gift you have trouble. Its all an attempt to grab guns.

Usually the high low going is from shifting when moving, there are tabs that get bent over bend them back and it'll usually be fine. But check the roll pin in the lever first
If not your still money ahead for a running Kohler
